Dig Deep with DJ Izrail (Chicago) #3 131212



On this week's show we are once again honoured to take a trip to the windy city as stella record selector/DJ mix co-ordinator extraordinaire Izrail Dizko takes to the decks for an hour long Mini-Mix.

Crafting his turntable skills since 1985, at the age of 15 DJ Izrail was opening parties for Dave D'Master Merritt & Vinny Divine in various Chicago based clubs.  Part of the house scene ever since, Izrail was DJing with Roy Davis jr & Paul Johnson as recently as October 2012.  Check the previous shows last December and May for a a more in depth background.

As head of The Chicago Dig Deep Family over the last year, Izrail has made it possible for us to broadcast exclusive mixes from the likes of Boo Williams, Gene Hunt, Boogie Nite the 7inch 45 King, Hot Mix Holmes, Neal Howard, K'Alexi Shelby, Terry Hunter, Dave Merritt.

An impeccable DJ in his own right, DJ Izrail's sets smoothly blend proper disco, early house, boogie, funk and acid whilst never dropping a beat. "We call it carrying on Chicago Tradition" laughs the humble man...

DJ Izrail's 2nd show on Soundcloud is currently top of the Dig Deep listen back chart whilst going head to head with the show featuring Boo Williams, so it's fair to say this guy can hold his own when it comes to putting the needle to the record.

Trainspotters, tapers house veterans and disco divas be ready, this is one of the finest sets we've played all year!

Do not miss this Dizko journey as we celebrate Izrail's one year anniversary with the Dig Deep Radio Show...  Plus expect the usual unusual selections from PT in the first hour.
